And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don't know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God's own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.
Do you have a life line, a person you always ask when you need advice. In many cases these people in our lives are our parents. When we need advice or help, they are the first we call, or it can be a good friend that we had for a long time. You see as humans we need companionship. We need somebody that we can talk to and share our feelings. I love those first few minutes when I see my son in the afternoons, how he immediately shares the highlights of his day followed by the things we must still buy that is outstanding in his toy collection. The Holy Spirit forms one of the most vital parts in our life as Christians. Jesus had to go so that God can send the Counsellor. Jesus also said that it is better for us that He goes, meaning that we will have so much more in the Holy Spirit. What Paul writes here just gives us that glimpse into the work of the Holy Spirit: “And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness.” And “The Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.” The Holy Spirit is the one that helps us when we are bombarded by the enemy, He is the one that tells us what to pray, and He is the one that fills me with today reminders. If you feel that you don’t know the Holy Spirit or that you don’t have this intimate relationship with Him, ask God to send the Holy Spirit to you, ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with His presence and to teach you how to understand Him and how to hear Him. He is God’s voice, but most important is that He pleads for us. The power of the Holy Spirit is unlimited and with Him in your life you will be able to move mountains. You remain in my prayers.
I am surely hoping that we will get more rain down here in South Africa.
Have a super day filled with the Holy Spirit, friend of Jesus.
